Tank Car Mystery at Whit

WHAT WILL THE END BE ? ....
In the minds of those who are studying the outcome of the war in
tlie far East, the ouestion is. "What will the end be I There are some
who think we can already fore cast the issue and do so with certainty.
Everything points to the early fall of Port Arthur. When this happens,
the Japanese will have won half the battle and possibly the larger half.
More than a month ago Gen. Dragomiroff advised that Port Arthur be
abandoned and the fleet destroyed, but Gen. Kuropatkin thought other
wise; he now sees that the stronghold is doomed. Sebastopol held out foi
a vear against an allied armv but the mehtods of war and the modern in
struments of destruction have advancd within the last GO years.
After leaving Port Arthur, what will the Russians do" It is sup
posed that thev will retreat to Mukden and lure the Japanese after them.
Will the Japanese follow or will they content themselves with holding and
fortifying the line "across the bases f the Korean Peninsula of Liao-Tung,
and defying the Russians to put them out? In possession ot this line
thev would be in possession of all Korea and of all maritime Manchuria.
Would not they be in possession of all for which they have really been
fighting? With not merely the Gulf of Pe-ehi-Li and Korea Bay, but
with the whole Pacific ocean, closed to Russia, might not Japan claim the
victory of which she possessed the spoils? If Russia wished to continue
the war, would it not behoove her to attempt to dislodge the Japanese,
while Japan could well afford to "stand pat"?

Rev. George R. Jones is to be substituted at many of the Chautau-
quas this year instead of Rev. Sam Jones. He is a southern gentleman
and is recommended bv Mr. Jones. The latter said recently: "Mr. Stew
art is better than I am." Many people who have heard Stewart say that
Jones told the truth when he said this. Good for Jones.

Hammond, Ind., June 2. The Hull '
murder mystery at Whiting has been1
exploded and an ending made of the
sensational stories surrounding the
death of Freu Hull. After a coroner'3
Inquiring covering three days, and an
autopsy, three physicians decided that
there was no proof of murder, and the
coroner reported that death was due
to asphyxiation. It was shown that
Hull had been dissipating freely for
some time. During the fag end of his
spree he borrowed $20 from a friend
and he told another friend that the
police were pursuing him because they
thought he had stolen the money.
Circumstances point conclusively to
the fact that Hull went to the Pennsyl
vania railway yards and removed the
cap of the naphtha tank, after which
he crawled in, readjusted the cap and
laid down and went to sleep. During
his slumber he was asphyxiated by the
powerful fumes. The bruises on his
face and head were shown to have
been caused by contact with bolts and
rivets in the tank while the car was in
transit. Not a single arrest has been
made in the case, as Chief Collins of ,
the Whiting police has never doubted '
that Hull's death was due to accident. '
The retiring firm of D. C. Beggs & Cd. take this method ot thaak'ng the
public for the substantial manner in which they have extended their patronage and
friendship to The Railroad Store in the past; and at the same time bespeak for the
new owners, Messrs. Game & Browrt, the same liberal support and friendship that
has so materially helped to bring this store to the front.
The policy of the store shall be, first of all:- Goods of strictly dependable qual
ities at the very lowest prices; and careful attention will be paid to those things that
will make trading with us a pleasure, namely courteous trsatment to all; square
dealing; no misrepresentation; all goods marked in plain figures; one pnee to
everyone; and YOUR MONEY BACK IF YOU WANT IT.
We hope a continuation of the liberal patronage extended to us will also be
given to the new firm.
Again we say, THANK YOU !

President Roosevelt's Americanism is always in evidence. In his
speech on the Gettysburg battle field, he said: "He is a poor American.
who, looking at this held, does not teel within lumselt a deep reverence
for the nation's past and a higher purpose to make the nation's future rise
level to her past."
The La Fayette Courier says: "The latest hard-luck story is tele-
granned from ii art torn v itv, Indiana, wnere another wise and circum

as useful and much less offensive than some of the ones coming from the
Yesterdav might well be called a "rare" first day of June and the!
second day gives no evidence of being "well done."

leave her perfidous husband, who has
slain Hamlet's father. The bloody
death of Polonius adds interest to ihe
plot, and the audience is held spell
